Who We Are

We are a family business based in Sydney, and dedicated fans of traditional sash windows. Our co-founder, Matt is a fully qualified and licensed carpenter who has been specialising in the sash restoration business in Sydney for the last 15 years. Through Matt’s work, he was increasingly being asked to draught seal sash windows, which inspired the launch of Ecobead. Our product is manufactured in Australia and was extensively tried, tested and perfected on Matt’s own restoration jobs before being released onto the market.

Our Story

So how did we get here?

Growing up in the UK, where drafty old windows are plentiful, we renovated many properties and restored their beautiful sash frames. Upon moving to Sydney in 2005 we were delighted to find sash windows in so many of the stunning heritage properties, and of course chose a home with this feature. When we came to renovate, however, we were somewhat surprised to not be able to find the draft exclusion products we were used to having access to back in the UK. When Matt started his sash restoration business, we had to import supplies from the UK, but this was obviously an expensive and cumbersome solution. So we set about creating our own collection of products that are especially designed and crafted for Sydney windows and launched our range of Ecobead products in 2019.

Matt continues to use our products for window restorations, and we are now delighted to offer them directly to sash window lovers all over Australia.
